(NBC)  Countless Americans -- including high profile celebrities --- have accepted the A-L-S  ice bucket challenge this summer.  And a new report finds it's paying off . 

The A-L-S Association reports it has received 94-point-three million dollars in donations over the past month compared to two-point-seven million during the same time period last year.  The donations have come from existing donors as well as more than  two million new contributors.

The association has pledged to use these donations wisely to assist patients suffering from A-L-S as well as fund research to find treatments and a cure for the disease.
